Our residential and nursing home is nestled in a quiet residential area of Greenwich, within walking distance of Deptford Bridge tube station. Near several bus stops, the home is easily accessible for our residents’ loved ones, while still being tucked away from the hustle and bustle of London life.

Providing residential dementia care, respite care, dementia nursing care, nursing care and palliative care, Riverlee is a forever home. This gives loved ones the peace of mind that as a resident’s needs change over time, the care we provide will evolve along the way.

Inside Riverlee, we have all the cosy comforts you’d expect, including bright and airy lounge and dining areas. The home also has a hairdressing salon, as well as an activity room. This is a real focal point and acts as a hub for our residents. It’s where we host all of our group activities, bringing everyone together in a social setting. We even have our own karaoke machine, so the room is often filled with laughter, singing and even dancing – and it’s big enough for residents and loved ones to join in the fun.

From quizzes, bingo and painting to baking and enjoying performances with live entertainers from across Greenwich. We still provide stimulating activities elsewhere in the care home, but it’s so nice for our residents to have a central place away from their day-to-day living areas to socialise.

For our residents with greater nursing needs, we can provide one-to-one activities in the comfort of their own bedrooms; whether enjoying a hand massage, sitting with staff to read their favourite book or catch up on the daily news. When we host animal therapy sessions in the activity room, these sessions can always be brought to a resident’s bedside. Our residential and nursing home is fully inclusive, and that’s the way it should be.

Greenwich Community engagement

We pride ourselves on supporting and empowering our residents to be part of their local Greenwich community, meeting new people and seeing fresh faces in their home. Sometimes before they move here they may have been quite isolated in their own homes. We support them to have active social lives and enjoy new and exciting activities with friends. The home’s larger celebrations, like Silver Sunday, summer fetes and barbecues, are often open to the local community, enabling them to stay connected.

At Riverlee we have a fantastic group of volunteers, who dedicate their spare time to the home. And there are regular visits from school children across Greenwich to look forward to. Spending time with the younger generation is something that is so beneficial for many of our residents’ well-being.  As you can imagine, their faces light up as soon as they hear the laughter of youngsters in the home.

There is plenty going on outside the residential and nursing home that our residents like to explore in London, with museums, garden centres and Greenwich Park. In the warmer months, we go further afield, enjoying an ice-cream at the seaside.

Pre-bookable respite care at Riverlee

We also offer respite care breaks which can be booked in advance - enabling people who care for loved ones at home to take a break of their own. They can plan a holiday for themselves, safe in the knowledge that their relative is being cared for by our wonderful team. Call us anytime on 0208 694 7140, or fill out our online form below to enquire about pre-bookable respite care.

Pricing information

It is usual for residents in care homes to contribute to the cost of their own care. Some people have the resources to pay for their care in full, whilst others make means-tested contributions. Our weekly fees are individual to each of our residents and are subject to a pre-admission assessment, which is required to truly understand the level of care and support needed.

Our 2022 weekly care fees for residential care start from £1,137 and £1,356 for nursing care, but maybe in the region of 20% more. This depends on your care needs and the type of bedroom that is right for you, from our standard rooms through to our premium bedroom options.

*If you require more specialist care such as 1-2-1 support your weekly fee could be higher.

How do I find out more about paying for care?

We have dedicated advisors in our Care Enquiry Hub, who can signpost you regarding funding care and give you more information about the home. If you would like to speak to them directly please call 0800 917 0478. If you are interested in viewing the home and speaking to a member of staff directly, we can also give you a remote ‘show around’ with a virtual tour.
